DACE have sent out the following message to Save DACE and all supporters of the campaign :
Many of you will have heard by now from the press and elsewhere that the consultation panel have recommended that the Open Programme should not be withdrawn. We are naturally delighted with this recommendation, which will go for approval to Court on June 22nd. We wish to thank all of you for your tremendous support during the consultation period.
You should be aware that we are seeking clarification on a number of points in the report and in particular are opposing the recommendation to remove the public funding from the programme. The full report and our response are attached. We will keep you up to date with future developments. Once again many thanks for your great efforts on behalf of adult education.
We look forward to the future.
